Clark: Give Lambert time

Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark admits patience will be needed as the club look to revive their fortunes with an entirely revised philosophy - but he is convinced the good times will roll once more under new boss Paul Lambert.

Speaking exclusively to ESPN, Clark has revealed that Lambert is looking to revolutionise the way Villa play, with the fluid passing style being promoted by the new Villa boss a radical change in direction from the ill-fated Alex McLeish era.

Losing their first two games of this new Premier League season against West Ham and Everton has put Lambert and Villa on the back foot, but Clark has given his new boss a glowing endorsement as he offers this unequivocal backing the ideology being promoted by the former Norwich boss.

"We are being encouraged to get the ball down and pass it every day in training, which is very different to what we have been used to over the last couple of years when we have been encouraged to play a more direct style," begins Clark, who has started this season as Lambert's first choice centre-back.

"All the lads here have thoroughly enjoyed the way the new manager has gone about things so far, but everyone may need to show a little bit of patience as we look to adapt to the new way of thinking.

"We also have a fair few new players who have come into the club and it takes time to get used to the way they play and unfortunately, the games have not gone as well for us as we would have hoped so far.

"People start to panic a little when you have a couple of disappointing results, but that panic does not exist in our dressing room. All of us believe we will get it right in the end and we just need to convert the work on the training ground into the Premier League now."

Clark was sent off in last weekend's 3-1 humbling against Everton at Villa Park, but he is ready to bounce back in this weekend's challenging trip to Newcastle.

"The style of football the manager wants from us was in evidence in the first half of our game at West Ham on the opening day of the season and it is just a case of producing that kind of possession play over the course of a full 90 minutes," added the 22-year-old.

Clark was speaking to ESPN in association with Aston Villa's charity partner Acorns.
